1:1 Technology Program
The 1:1 program provides students with access to digital learning resources including online textbooks, creation, communication, collaboration and productivity tools. This program is standard for all Garland ISD students. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the variety of digital learning resources that they have access to in their classes.
The goal of our 1:1 program is to empower students to gain the skills and knowledge they need to achieve academic success and prepare them for our ever increasing globally connected society.
The 1:1 program provides a Chromebook to every 3rd-12th grade student and an iPad for PreK-2nd grade students for use throughout the day. Students will be issued a specific device assigned exclusively to them. Each device will have an asset tag which is scanned and assigned in our inventory system to each student. Students will receive instruction on the proper use and care of their assigned Chromebook or iPad.
This GISD program provides digital devices to students in order to:
personalize instruction to each student’s unique needs, abilities and interests
show students how to use technology to enhance education
provide consistent, student-centered curriculum with real-world connections
ensure equity of digital resources
emphasize the importance of digital citizenship
create collaborative learning environments
prepare students with the skills needed to succeed in college and careers
